I gave it three sticks because my hair did eventually get straight and at no point did I feel like it harmed my hair, but it's not even adjustable because again, the company claims that this iron auto-adjusts according to hair "conductivity" or some bullshit like that (this is a laughable claim). It does have auto-shut off but so do a lot of irons (or at least the high end ones). Honestly, I can only conclude that this is another one of those hyped up beauty products aimed at people who think more $$$= better product and performance but a straightener is a straightener so once you get past the $100 price point it all comes down to personal preference and there's really not much more you're gonna get for your money...
Bought these on recommendation of my hairdresser to deal with my chemo damaged hair. Thankfully I didn't lose my hair but it did go really thin during treatment. 18 months on from treatment my once fine, straight and easily managed hair has come back in thick with random curly and wavy bits. My old straighteners which had served me well over the years were snagging, pulling and breaking both the damaged and newly growing hair but these ones glide through the hair with hardly any breakage.

There’s no doubting that ghd electricals are more than just a name in the hair industry. With an amazing range of products designed to make every day a Good Hair Day, the brand has totally revolutionised the way we style our hair at home. If you’re new to the ghd styler family, and wondering which is the perfect choice for you from their range of salon-quality, do-it-all heat stylers, here’s everything you need to know to make your decision.
* * * Update: After returning the above-described item, I bought a ghd Classic Styler in-person from one of their authorized salon dealers (info at ghd's site). When I went to register the hologram and date codes, the ghd site accepted them on the first try. Also, the second unit I bought HAD country-of-manufacture information on the box and on the date sticker (made in China, which some other comments said isn't legit, that seems to be wrong). My unit labeled made-in-China is the one that registered successfully with ghd. Also my second purchase - from the authorized dealer - had a lot of information printed on the bottom of the box, including a bar code, web info, consumer information phone number, design info and information about the product. The unit I purchased from Amazon had NO printing on the bottom of the otherwise authentic-looking box. Draw your own conclusions. Bottom-line: if you buy a ghd styler here, double and triple-check that your unit is for real.
Always on the road? You can use the GHD Classic Styler during travels; its universal voltage plug can be used in a variety of sockets and also automatically adjusts its own voltage for optimum versatility. The device itself is equipped with a variety of “modes” to fit your lifestyle. When the device is not in use for 30 minute, it reverts to sleep mode so you can save up on energy and heat temperature. Its shiver mode, on the other hand, is an advanced option that fights condensation in a room with temperatures below 5°C.
Against the ghd Platinum Styler: On the other hand, the Platinum Styler features more sensors and heaters than the new ghd Gold. This essentially means it will heat the hair quicker, and is a little safer in terms of heat delivery, too. Six sensors and heaters work to deliver optimal heat to the hair, instinctively adjusting to give you a transformative experience. Where this is the top-of-the-range choice, the ghd Gold Professional Styler sits perfectly in the middle, a great mix of affordability and professional quality.

I got a new GHD styler/straightener for my birthday this year. My old original ghd maxx sadly gave up and died after 10 years of faithful service! I opted for the standard design this time as it was in a special mother’s day gift pack for a reduced price and I am really happy with it. Although it takes a little longer to styler my long thick hair (compared to the thicker tonged styler) it has the same long lasting, shiny effect!
Inferior hair straighteners take a very long time to heat, and you really need to make sure that they’re on their highest setting to have any effect. But that means getting lots of split ends, and you hair often looks frizzy, dry, and generally unhealthy. And once you go outside, if ever you live in an area that’s a bit humid the straight hair quickly goes to its default pouf settings. 
The payment free period will start from the date of order (including for those items which are purchased on pre-order and/or are not ready for immediate dispatch). All financial services products, delivery and installation charges, unless otherwise stated, are excluded from this offer, exclusions will be confirmed at the point of order. The interest is calculated from order date and will be added to your account after the end of the payment free period.

This is my current go to styler at home. The one inch plates work perfectly for medium length hair. I don’t recommend using this plate size for longer hair , as it can be a task. The plates heat up and beep in about 60 seconds making this a necessity for busy people as well as a busy and timely stylist. There is also a hard plastic sleeve to cover the plates so it can be packed away quickly. They heat up to 450°f so that’s useful when traveling.
Staying true to its name, a good hair day is guaranteed with the use of ghd products. From the iconic ghd straighteners and ghd stylers, which continue to be a cult must-have for women in search of beautiful hair, to the ghd hairdryers which promise salon style in half the time, ghd products combine style with styling, making sure your dresser looks as chic as your hair.
